The essential guide to fight inflammation, heal your gut, and reset your body with detox and clean eating
After suffering for a decade from a range of ailments like Lyme Disease, Hypothyroidism, and Leaky Gut Syndrome, Amie Valpone, creator of TheHealthyApple.com, healed herself through clean eating and detoxing. In Eating Clean, Amie provides guidance on how to fight inflammation and reset your body, including a 21-Day Elimination Diet, instructions for food reintroduction, a 2-week meal plan, and an extensive pantry list. The book has over 200 recipes that are vegetarian and free of gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs, and refined sugar to keep tummies healthy and satisfied—such as Velvety Pear and Fennel Soup, Carrot “Fettuccine” with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pumpkin Seeds, and Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream. With this book, readers are able to get the support they need on their path toward wellness.
"Clean eating" may be an overused phrase these days, but as this cookbook shows, it's still a valuable way of thinking about food in a postindustrial world. Culinary nutritionist and blogger Valpone knows firsthand about the connection between food and well-being. Once sick herself with a variety of ailments, she offers her insights on the natural lifestyle that she says healed her and the rationale for going allergen free. There's a plan here for a 21-day elimination diet, as well as a cornucopia of recipes many of which reflect the current trends on health-conscious blogs including spiralized veggie noodles, raw tarts, and baked oatmeal. Some of the entrees, such as the Pumpkin Enchiladas with Moo-Free Cashew Sour Cream and mini-black-rice-and-almond sliders verge on too-technical for a weekday. Yet there are plenty of quicker options, such as the requisite grain-free brownies and no-soy chickpea miso soup. Pure inventiveness shines through in breadless coconut vanilla French toast, Perfect Pumpkin Gelato, and curried maple hummus, making this book a valuable resource for those that don't want to give up excitement along with their toxic substances.
